2255 Taming the Comets
“Where is the Epitome Monarch Pill then?” Zhang Xuan asked.
“To be frank, I’m not too sure where it is. I have only seen it once throughout the past Floods of Spiritual Energy, and I nearly lost my life to it back then,” Ao Feng said.
“You don’t know?”
“The pill possesses sentience, and it is able to transmogrify into a human. It’s exceptionally skilled in concealing itself and assaulting those coming after it, making it a difficult opponent to deal with. In the previous Flood of Spiritual Energy, it killed Conferred God King Ao Ye of our Sky of Cloud Dragon.” Ao Feng shook his head.
Even in this land filled with all sorts of danger, what Ao Feng feared the most was still the Epitome Monarch Pill.
Morphed into a pill, it could hide in the narrowest of spaces, not emanating the slightest aura at all. It was like the perfect assassin that could silently snipe away the lives of the cultivators in the Flooding Sea one after another.
Just recalling what happened back then made shivers run down his spine.
If not for the disciples of the Heaven Subjugation Monarch passing by just at that moment, he would have already been a goner!
“Where did you meet it last time?” Zhang Xuan asked.
“I met it at the Lake of Comets!”
The Lake of Comets was yet another dangerous land in the Flooding Sea. There were all sorts of rocks flying randomly in all directions, intersecting one another, forming something reminiscent of a massive formation.
If not to seek treasures in there, even the strongest of Conferred God King would do well to stay away from it.
“Let’s head over there,” Zhang Xuan said.
After receiving the coordinates from Ao Feng, he quickly tore open a spatial passageway.
The first thing that came into their sight after walking out of the spatial passageway was a massive lake that rose all the way into the sky. There were countless comets flying in the area, emanating a brilliant glow.
From time to time, these comets would collide into one another with a resounding explosion, and with a series of shockwaves, the surrounding space would collapse into a black dimension rift.
“What’s truly frightening in the Lake of Comets is not the comets themselves nor their collision. It is the everchanging gravity within that space,” Ao Feng explained grimly. “Those comets are unbelievably heavy despite their relatively smaller size, and due to their random movements, the gravitational field within the area changes chaotically!”
Zhang Xuan frowned.
He had experienced an abrupt change in the gravitational field back at the Azure Bridge. Back then, it had just been a swift ninety-degree change in his center of gravity, but it had still left him disorientated for a brief moment.
In the Lake of Comets, however, there were all sorts of comets flying in all directions, like a series of ping pong balls flying all around an enclosed space.
If the gravitational field within the area was constantly changing along with the movements of the comets, it would take him a long time to adapt to this new environment. By then, the Flood of Spiritual Energy might have already ended.
“I’ll have a go.”
Taking in a deep breath, Zhang Xuan extended his Spiritual Perception to perceive the gravitational field within the area, but barely a moment later, his face started to turn ghastly pale.
He felt as if he had been thrown into a washing machine and tossed around the place like a rag.
Just as he had imagined, the gravity affected not only one’s physical body but one’s soul as well. One would have to swiftly adapt to the constant changes in order to be able to maneuver around the area properly.
Luo Qiqi took out a sword and tossed it in. The next moment, it began flying randomly in all directions, as if a fly buzzing randomly around the area.
After moving randomly for a moment, under the relentless pull of gravity from all directions, the sword spirit finally dissipated, and the sword itself disintegrated.
The three of them looked at one another with widened eyes.
The sheer pressure from the gravitational force was actually enough to destroy a high-tier Celestial God artifact so easily. Just the thought of it sent shivers down their spine.
“How did you enter the area back then?” Luo Qiqi asked.
“Actually, I never entered the area. I was attacked while I was outside,” Ao Feng replied with a reddened face.
That explained it.
Just looking at this area was enough to leave him with goosebumps all over. It was unimaginable that someone of Ao Feng’s prowess would be able to enter and leave such a place safely.
“I’ll head in to take a swift look. Wait outside and don’t move recklessly,” Zhang Xuan said.
He channeled his Sword Intent around his body before walking right into the lake.
As soon as he entered the area, he felt a powerful pull tugging at his body, trying him to drag him somewhere.
To resist the pull of gravity, Zhang Xuan exerted the strength of his physical body, causing his muscles to bulge out.
The gravitational field around him continued changing, but by stiffening his body, he was able to remain rooted to the spot. He waited for a moment to allow himself to become accustomed to the change in gravity before taking a step forward.
Two comets were drawn to each other by each other’s gravitational pull, and they surged rapidly toward him.
Zhang Xuan quickly drew his sword and slashed at the two comets.
The two comets broke apart simultaneously, and a stream of smoke flowed out from them.
Zhang Xuan’s eyes lit up. These comets are incredibly tough are good stuff!
Given that a high-tier Celestial God sword had been destroyed so easily by the gravitational pull, he had been wondering how these comets were still able to remain intact in such an environment. As it turned out, the resilience of these comets had already reached a level comparable to God King realm artifacts.
What a pity that they can’t be forged into weapons However, if I could just collect these comets, it would be a sight to behold once I toss them toward my enemies
Through his Eye of Insight, he could tell that these comets could not be forged into weapons. Nevertheless, they would still make pretty decent weapons even if he tossed them as they were at his enemies.
The only problem was that
These comets were moving way too fast for him to collect!
If I store them into my storage ring while they are moving, it will surely puncture a hole in my storage ring and shatter the space within.
Due to the pull of gravity, the comets were both fast and forceful. As such, he could not simply collect them into his storage ring in their current state.
He would have to first find a way to slow them down, but it was beyond his means to do so at the moment!
Under the chaotic pull of gravity, even remaining on the spot was difficult enough for him. It would be nigh impossible for him to stop a comet in his current state.
Even though these comets can’t be forged into weapons, if I think of them as my bricks, I guess they could kind of be considered as weapons already If so, is it possible for me to enchant them?
His bricks were also good for pretty much nothing except for their exceptional resilience, which was similar to the comets. If his bricks could be enchanted, there was no reason these comets could not be enchanted.
Once he enchanted them, he should be able to make them slowly come to a halt before placing them in his storage ring.
I should give it a try!
So, Zhang Xuan gave himself in to the gravitational pull and began flying toward one of the comets. As soon as he arrived close to one, he reached out to touch the comet.
Outside the Lake of Comets
“There are so many comets in there, and the gravitational field is a huge mess. Will Elder Zhang be fine?” Ao Feng asked worriedly.
“I’m not sure. The forces inside the Lake of Comets are so chaotic that even I would have trouble freezing the space in there. I’m a little worried about Zhang shi as well,” Luo Qiqi replied fretfully.
Dodging those fast-moving comets was already difficult in itself, and the constantly changing gravitational field only made things worse. One would have to be incredibly lucky to survive there!
In terms of danger, it was several times worse than facing the phantasmagoric spirits.
The fact that even Luo Qiqi, a master of manipulating space, was unable to move freely in such a region showed just how dangerous the Lake of Comets was.
“It’s too dangerous. I wouldn’t even last ten seconds in there! Should we call Elder Zhang to pull back” Ao Feng asked.
But before he could finish his words, his face suddenly froze.
He had just witnessed the impossible.
Deep in the Lake of Comets, a young man was standing calmly on the spot, and several comets were circling neatly around him in single file. From time to time, these comets would leap up a little, as if trying to act cute. They looked no different from a bunch of well-trained performance dogs.
